Infinite Loop on Epic Games Luncher (iMac)

The client I am using:
iMac, at the latest update (macOS High Sierra Version 10.13.4)

My issue:
Greetings, I factory reset my Mac to grant more access and space from my hard drive and to delete any corrupted files. I decided to download Epic Games to play Fortnite. Now the first time I did it worked (before I factory reset), but now when I install it I did what it asked me to do. I dragged it into the applications folder and I decided to put it on my desktop on the home screen. I clicked on it and it was updating then it says ‘‘Verifying Update’’ When it finished it says ‘‘Verifying Update’’ over and over again. When i force quit it gives me a crash report with nothing in it. I tried re-installing it and remove any epic games folder from my mac to check for any corruption; It still goes in a loop. Any similar problems? Any solutions? Much appreciated


I solved a solution to it. Instead of opening the Epic Games Launcher on the desktop, I opened it in the Applications folder and it completely works! If anyone else has this solution be sure to check that out since it worked for me!

You just have to force quit the application and open “Finder” then “Applications” then right click on “unreal engine” and select “open” it will open.
